Naval Facilities Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare Center (EXWC) requires construction support services for ongoing Petroleum Oil and Lubricant (POL) work at the Red Hill Bulk Fuel Storage Facility (RHBFSF), Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam, Hawaii. Services will include staffing, equipment, and materials necessary to support POL construction contractor work at the RHBFSF. The POL construction contracts at RHBFSF involve cleaning, inspection, repair, and coating work on liquid fuel storage tank liners, piping, vents, valves, pumps, and motors. Often more than one construction contract will be ongoing at the same time at the facility. Typical construction support services will include
a. Installation, operation, and maintenance of tank liner access systems for personnel and materials
b. Generation, distribution, and maintenance of electrical service
c. Production and maintenance of industrial ventilation
d. Production and maintenance of compressed air
e. Installation and maintenance of austere office space.
Due to the unique nature of the RHBFSF and the specialized inspection and construction work necessary at the facility, support services will take place inside tunnels, adits, large underground storage tanks, and confined spaces.
Support services for construction and inspection work will be continuous with various contractors although there could be periods with no activity. A general description of the facility is attached to this notice.
The Governmentâ€™s intent is to specify annual baseline and peak support service requirements. A more detailed list of requirements will be included in a Request for Proposal (RFP), should one be issued.

After finalization of an acquisition strategy and if an RFP is released, it will be posted on the FEDBIZOPPS website.
The intent is to award a Firm Fixed Price (FFP) type of contract with base and option years.
